The vss error causes power loss after you cruise at about 50mph upwards for a good length of time.

All of a sudden you lose all power and it won't drive anywhere.

Then after a few minutes they run OK again.

I feel it has something to do with the trim tables on the ecu's software. It's trying to tune for fuel economy, but because the VSS isn't working the ECU see's 0 mph. So it makes the whole trim table totally lean to the point where all the power dies.

It's one of those faults that's reared its head on this forum 4 or 5 times now, and only though coincidence was the true cause actually discovered Laughing

Wasn't it only on 1.3's though - a P reg would be a 998, methinks.

Don't know, the 993cc does have a VSS sensor though, how a faulty VSS sensor effects 993cc running issues I do not know.
